Controlling and logging anonymous marking

Jump to solution

The new features look great, especially the persistence of view, especially when this comes to anonymous marking. It is essential that once the marking is put in to anonymous mode, that it sticks when switching between speedgrader and the grades tool (and anywhere else in the course!)

What we need to be able to do though is for a higher authority to turn on anonymous marking.

SO the question is...

Can you make it possible for any/all of the following options to be added to the toggle for anonymous marking?

a) prevent the teachers in the course from being able to override it and turn it off

b) have a complete and visible log of who turned it off and when they turned it off and for what reason

c) requests for turning off anonymous marking are made by the teacher and sent to a third party with higher permissions to turn off anonymous marking.

I know that there is a bigger piece of work on anonymous marking being done as it was announced at InstructureCon, however, as this is linked to Gradebook, we need to have a joined up conversation.

Thanks

This is a great idea that we want to explore in a future priority around grading.  Anonymous grading and double blind grading are two things that will not change as part of the Gradebook phases listed, but they're something we would like to work on when we look at grading practices in the future.  

I searched through ideas in https://community.canvaslms.com/community/ideas and did not find one related to admin controls of anonymous grading.  Please take a look to see if you find any similar to your idea, and if not, please submit new!  Thanks.

 @joel_mills ‌, to  @Renee_Carney 's terrific advice I'd like to add that there are a pair of feature ideas currently in Radar stage which are different, but which have discussions relating to the need you articulated:

And I'll add that I would be happy to vote for and share an idea around a persistent setting or permission related to anonymous marking.
